Impartisan - FF6
Crude, crescent-tipped fishing spear used by imps.
—Description, Final Fantasy VI

The Impartisan (さごじょうのやり, Sagojō no Yari?, lit. Spear of Sagojo), also called Imp Halberd, is a recurring weapon from the Final Fantasy series. The weapon is usually related to Imps (Kappa in the Japanese version).

AppearanceEdit

Final Fantasy VIEdit

VI The Impartisan was called Imp Halberd in the older translations. This spear has an attack power of 253, but the power of the spear is only "activated" when equipped on a character under the Imp status. When equipped on a human, the Impartisan only has an attack power of 1 and unarmed is 10. Since the Impartisan is a spear weapon, it gets the attack bonus from Jump. It enables Runic and is Two-handed compatible, the spear can also be equipped by everyone except Umaro.

It can be dropped from Tyrannosaur, stolen from Greater Mantis, morphed from Cactuar, Tonberry, and Tonberries, and won by betting the Cat-Ear Hood in the Coliseum.

EtymologyEdit

Impartisan is a portmanteau of "imp" and "partisan." An imp is "a small, mischievous devil or sprite."

A partisan is a type of polearm that was used in Europe during the Middle Ages. It consisted of a spearhead mounted on a long shaft (usually made of wood) with protrusions on the sides which aided the user in parrying sword thrusts.

In the Japanese version, the Impartisan is called Spear of Sagojo. Shā Wùjìng is one of the three disciples of Xuánzàng in the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West. His name is translated into Japanese as Sha Gojō (sometimes Sha Gojyō, as jō is spelled in kana as ji-yo-u, or Sagojou in Romaji.

TriviaEdit

  • Shā Wùjìng's weapon is the yueyachan ("Crescent-Moon-Shovel" or "Monk's Spade"). The Impartisan resembles the Monk's spade, also called a Shaolin Spade. It is a Chinese pole weapon consisting of a long pole with a flat spade-like blade on one end, and a smaller crescent shaped blade on the other. It is most famous for being the weapon of Shā Wùjìng, the "Sand Monk" from the 16th-century classic Chinese novel Journey to the West.
